LONGLISTED FOR THE 2019 WOMEN’S PRIZE FOR FICTION WINNER OF THE McKITTERICK PRIZE SHORTLISTED FOR THE GOLDSBORO BOOKS GLASS BELL AWARD ‘Scandalous’ DAILY MAIL ‘Spellbinding’ SUNDAY EXPRESS ‘Sparkling’ GUARDIAN ‘Fascinating’ RED ‘Remarkable’ WOMAN AND HOME ‘Astounding’ EMERALD STREET ‘Glamorous’ IRISH TIMES ___________________________ To the outside world, they were the icons of high society – the most glamorous and influential women of their age. To Truman Capote they were his Swans: the ideal heroines, as vulnerable as they were powerful. They trusted him with their most guarded, martini-soaked secrets, each believing she was more special and loved than the next… Until he betrayed them. ‘Writers write. And one can’t be surprised if they write what they know.’ ______________________________ ‘The new Donna Tartt’ VOGUE ‘A dazzlingly assured first novel… This clever book, with the moreish astringency of a negroni, is a perfect summer cocktail.’ SUNDAY TIMES ‘A whirlwind of a first novel. There is great pathos in the Swans’ woundings and in their inevitable decline. And the character of Truman himself shimmers through the novel in a wonderful blaze of eccentricity and excess. Outstanding.’ ROSE TREMAIN ‘A completely fascinating novel and a marvellously skilful re-imagining of real people, times and places. Outstanding.’ WILLIAM BOYD ‘Our generation’s The Secret History’ PENDORA ‘Brilliantly written, deeply researched, funny, sharp and moving.’ – KATE WILLIAMS, bestselling author of Josephine ‘Brilliantly captures Capote’s acid wit and his dramatic downfall.’ THE TIMES, Books of the Year ‘This is a first novel of extraordinary skill, a book of which Capote would have been proud’ OBSERVER ‘Greenberg-Jephcott’s debut is a devastating read that blurs the lines between vulnerability and narcissism; sex and power… will have you racing breathlessly towards the end’ THE POOL
